Experience a Side of Tokyo Rarely Seen in Part 4 of the Cult Classic.
SAN FRANCISCO (September 2nd 2010) – SEGA® of America, Inc. today released the first gameplay trailer specifically created for the Western markets for Yakuza™ 4. The title, which was a surprise announcement at the 2010 E3 Expo, will be available exclusively on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system in Spring 2011.
Set in a fully realized, authentic recreation of Tokyo’s “Sin-City District” the deep and interweaving crime drama of Yakuza 4 unfolds through the eyes of four unique and dangerous characters. Playing as the legendary Kazuma Kiryu, the loan shark Akiyama, escaped convict Saejima or detective Tanimura, players will need to survive the dangers and temptations of the Japanese underworld.
Visit Hostess clubs, try karaoke, or experience the pachinko parlors and other adult entertainment, only found in Tokyo. Each character will take on different missions, allowing the player to interact with the city from their unique viewpoints and experience every taboo in the underground world of Tokyo. And, for the first time in the series, you can explore the spectacular backdrop of the city’s skyline in addition to the city’s intricate underground system and its rich and realistic backstreets.
“The Yakuza franchise provides an unparalleled experience of Japanese culture and Yakuza 4 brings a little known side of Tokyo to life in a truly authentic manner” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America, Inc. “This time not only through the experiences of Kazuma, but three new gritty and unique individuals from his world.”
